KEN MATTOX, MD, AND MARSHALL COTHRAN WIN AMA AWARDS

Two stalwart members of the Texas family of medicine were honored at the AMA House of Delegates meeting. Houston trauma surgeon Ken Mattox, MD, received the 2013 AMA Benjamin Rush Award for Citizenship and Community Service. The award is given “for outstanding contributions to the community for citizenship and public service above and beyond the call of duty as a practicing physician.” Dr. Mattox was recognized for his service in Houston’s medical response to several natural disasters, including hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Tropical Storm Allison in 2001. Marshall Cothran, CEO of the Travis County Medical Society and the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas, received the Medical Executive Meritorious Achievement Award. AMA gives this award to a medical society executive who has provided exemplary and exceptional service that benefits and supports physicians in caring for their patients. This contribution “is exemplary beyond the normal scope of their duties or responsibilities.”
